I am sure you have heard that the brain is divided into two parts: the left brain and the right brain. The left brain functions differently from the right brain and each is responsible for different jobs.
Generally, the left side of the brain is very “stiff.” It houses Math, Logic, black and white vision, analytical thinking, critical thinking and reason. It is the “thinking” part of the brain.
The right side of the brain is more “loose.” It tends to be the one that houses colors, Music, Art, emotions, intuition, etc. It is the “enjoying” part of the brain.
People act and think differently, not only because we are unique, but this also has to do with which side of their brains is predominant.
Watch this funny video to give you an idea on how left-brained and right-brained people act.
In this post, you will see a list of gifts for children. The list is divided into two: one is for left-brained children and right-brained children. They will be more fun and appealing to the predominant sides of their brain.
I have a left-brained child and a right-brained child. That got me thinking about that and how they learn and what they enjoy and about the upcoming holidays. So I created a list of gifts that each one of them would enjoy and thought of sharing it with you. I hope you find it helpful! 🙂
